Slip-And-Fall Injuries Are Not Uncommon
Millions of people go to the emergency room each year for “slip-and-fall” accidents. Many people suffer injuries to their backs, necks, shoulders, arms and legs and even heads. In some cases, a severe head injury can lead to death.
These injuries can happen at work, while you are shopping or even on city streets. If you are injured due to a “slip and fall,” your employer, the city or the business may be liable for those injuries.
There are several factors to consider in a slip-and-fall case. These factors include:
Compensation is awarded for different categories of injury including medical bills, pain and suffering and lost wages.
What To Do After A Slip-And-Fall Injury
The first and most important thing to do after an injury is to:
- File an incident report with the business, even if your injuries seem minor, as an injury can worsen over time.
- Seek medical attention immediately and preserve all documentation.
- Document the conditions that existed where the fall occurred with reports, videos and photos of the area and of the injury.
- If any witnesses or employees were present or came to your aid, please make sure to ask for their contact information.
In order for someone to be held liable, they must have a legal responsibility for the property or business, and any occurrences that take place on that property or business. If you are involved in a “slip-and-fall” accident as a result of someone else’s negligence, get in touch with our team of attorneys as soon as possible to discuss your claim.
